Cornell orchards, click here for map and directions, is a magical place for apples. Many varieties are available for purchase and tasting (one can help oneself from the well-stocked barrels in the picture below), including special varieties developed for NYS agriculture.
Apples are the major speciality, but lots of other types of fruit are also available; yesterday I spotted two varieties each of peaches, plums and pears.

is best from Avital’s Apiaries (of course!)
